This year, we will have five climate challenge panels with speakers addressing each challenge from a different perspective. The panels will be focused on the intersections of climate change and drought and water availability, wildfire, desertification and soil health, extreme events, and invasive species. Some of these topics are relevant to current Community of Practice (CoP) members, while others we hope will spur new CoPs. Not a current member of a CoP? That’s okay! We’d love to have you join us! Learn more about our CoPs.

Dr. Eileen Johnson of the Lubbock Lake Landmark will be our keynote presenter for Wednesday’s dinner, and we will also have Dr. Carol Flueckiger talk with us about how art can be used in science communication.

We encourage individuals supported by CASC projects to submit an abstract to our poster session. CoP members are also encouraged to submit a poster for their CoP work to the poster session.

The Lubbock Lake Landmark  (2401 Landmark Drive) is located about 5 miles north of the Texas Tech University Campus. The archaeological park encompasses 336 acres of the former Lubbock Lake and Springs located in Yellow House Draw of the north fork of the Brazos River. Archaeological work since 1939 has documented continuous human habitation of the location for the past 12,000 years. The site is one of the most extensive stratigraphic records of climate change, animal biodiversity, and human habitation on the Southern High Plains. The site is also one of the most well stratified and well dated geological deposits in North America. We will have a guided tour of the area and access to the landmark museum at the end of the tour.

The National Ranching Heritage Center (part of the TTU- Museum and is located at 3121 4thStreet) is a 19-acre historical park that focuses on housing and ranching structures over the last 200 years on the Southern High Plains of Texas.  The site provides a chronological tour of early to mod-19th century building and homes and the adaptability used to address the regions climate and weather. Tours are self-guided and some structures are open to visit.
